SAN ANTONIO - City leaders are pushing forward with urban development and the "Decade of Downtown."

Part of that push is additional housing in the downtown area and getting people to move back to the city center.

To help all of that, San Antonio is one of the most affordable housing markets in the country, according to a real estate analytics group, and the rental market is holding a similar trend coming out of 2014.

The median rent in San Antonio is currently at $830 for a two-bedroom apartment, according to the December figures from Apartment List's Rental Price Monitor; that is nearly half of San Diego, California, where median rent is $1,700.

More good news for the local leasing market is that rent growth is continuing stay low at 1.3 percent, well under the national average of 2.8 percent.
